This has been one of those weeks that I'm reminded how hard this job of motherhood really is. Before having children, I would have thought it would be the potty training, sleepless nights, and continual explosions of clothes and toys throughout my house that would make this job so difficult at times. But after this week, I've realized it's so much more. It's watching your child be shunned by so-called friends. It's crying with another as you break some difficult news, knowing it's for the sake of the family as a whole, but how much it will hurt the one. It's choosing to make decisions as a family that may not be in line with society or even friends. It's in those times that my heart breaks. I know it's only going to get harder as they get older, but I'm so glad that I get to be there to walk along side them. For all the jobs in the world, I wouldn't trade mine for any of them.
